    JNU FEE HIKE

    HRD keeps a close eye on JNU as classes set to resume today

    Having pushed through a resolution formula with the agitating students and the varsity administration, the officials are confident that students would choose to attend classes rather than boycott them.

    Left parties created atmosphere of violence at JNU: Yogi Adityanath

    Referring to the recent violence at the JNU campus, Adityanath said, "Lef...

    • The university administration will extend the deadline for the semester registration process again if needed, he said after the HRD Ministry met with a five-member team from the JNU administration, including JNU Vice Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar.

      Terming the clash "unfortunate", ABVP state president alleged that the violence was the handiwork of Leftitst forces who want to destabilise the situation in the JNU. More than 35 students and faculty members were assaulted on Sunday evening after masked men armed with sticks and iron rods went on a rampage inside the campus of the institute.

      Shortly after Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar took over as VC of the JNU, in Jan 2016, he emphasised faculty and students should be known for their scientific and social contributions and it should not be in the news for the wrong reasons. Ironically, JNU has been in the news for the wrong reasons, thereafter.

      A pall of terror and fear prevails in Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University. It was not the same 'safe space', after about a 100-strong mob entered the campus, breaking and hitting everything that came their way. Students described that neither them, their teachers, cars, motorcycles and other property were spared.

      Hours after violence broke out at the JNU campus on Sunday, teachers raised questions on the university's security and alleged that the administration was hand in glove with the attackers.

      In JNU, evaluation of students is conducted in different modes — home assignments, quizzes, term papers, presentations, sessional examinations etc., the varsity said.

      The Jawaharlal Nehru University students boycotted the exams on Thursday over the hostel fee hike issue, even as the School of Sanskrit and Indic Studies (SSIS) saw students appearing for their papers.

      "We condemn in the strongest terms the unprovoked police brutality on the peaceful protest marches of JNU students against the illegal adoption of a revised hostel manual by the JNU administration and the proposed steep rise in fees," 31 members of the JNU's Faculty Feminist Collective said in a statement.

      The students plan to march to Rashtrapati Bhavan on Monday and also boycott exams. The issue has been taken up in Parliament and has also been discussed in detail by the Human Resource Development ministry with both Home Minister Amit Shah and the Prime Minister’s Office.

      The letter, dated November 27, has sought an “urgent intervention” of the ministries of external affairs and HRD, requesting that a Tibetan-specific directive be issued as per the provisions of the home ministry’s Tibetan Rehabilitation policy to all universities including JNU, officials in the know told ET.

      The Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry's committee on JNU will initiate dialogues with students and administration as well as submit recommendations on resolution of all issues, they said.

      This week, once again, JNU blipped on our radar, this time with the same scruffy students protesting against a proposed hostel fee hike. The current hostel mess security deposit (refundable) is Rs 5,500, a monthly accommodation fee for a single-occupancy room Rs 20, and Rs 10 for a double-occupancy room. Yes, a piddly amount.
